Alabama loses the Rose Bowl, the former five-star quarterback won’t have tons of time to think about his decision. The transfer portal window closes Jan. 2 for all players not part of a New Year’s Six bowl, and those players have an extended five days.

Does that make things stressful having a small window?

“It certainly does,” Simpson said. “You look at Malik Murphy who’s a friend of mine at Texas. He felt like transferring was best for him and he left the team when they were going to the playoffs. It certainly does. But I think there’s a lot of credibility with staying and waiting out and making sure this is the right place to be or whatever. It certainly does for sure. At the same time, I committed to the University of Alabama at the start of the season and when I was a recruit and I’m going to own up to that commitment until the season ends.”
